Atletico Madrid announced on Tuesday that Ghanaian Thomas Partey has signed a contract extension with the club up to 2022.
The 23-year-old joined the Spanish giants in 2011 and has gradually become an important squad player under manager Diego Simeone.
"I’m very happy. I want to continue growing in Atleti," Partey told the club's official website.
"I have always been very fond of this club and I want to keep on developing at Atletico. I will give everything for this club."
Partey’s contract extension arrives after his return from the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations, where he was one of the positives in what was an otherwise disappointing campaign for the Black Stars.
